Representation in arbitral proceedings in German or English language in all matters related to Austrian law
A special agreement, namely an arbitration agreement, is necessary to bring a case before an arbitral tribunal. Often little attention is paid to the wording of arbitration agreements, especially when it is contained in an arbitration clause in contracts or terms and conditions.
From our advisory practice we know that a carelessly worded arbitration clause may jeopardise the desired effect of arbitration proceedings – swift and efficient clarification. In such cases a dispute on the validity and effectiveness of the arbitration agreement comes first.
We assure that your preferred arbitral tribunal is validly agreed upon and take into consideration common recommended clauses of the respective national or international arbitration institution. Besides we support you in complying with formal statutory requirements in order to avoid common mistakes in agreeing on arbitration.
We represent you throughout the proceedings before institutional arbitral tribunals or ad hoc arbitration courts under specific rules of procedure. Our representation is limited to cases with reference to Austrian law. If necessary we cooperate with specialised foreign colleagues.
Contrary to “ordinary” court judgements, arbitral awards are enforceable in virtually all countries of the world, as virtually all countries of the world have ratified the New York Convention on Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards.
We support you in enforcing your arbitral award in Austria.
